The pour into my Sam Smith glass raises a voluminous two-finger plus head that unfortunately starts falling right away, but does so with a lot of very large bubbles bursting. The head leaves some very fine lacing. The body is even a little transparent: when backlit, it is a very deep ruby. A very attractive beer. The nose smells very much like vanilla, with definite, though mild, roasted accents. It's pretty straightforward and light, really. Well, on the first taste, I'm quite surprised. This beer really goes over the top with vanilla flavor. It's very sweet, and almost completely dominates the roast that I picked up in the nose. You have to REALLY like vanilla for this to work for you. It doesn't taste like any porter I've ever had, but I actually like this a lot. It would be a bit better if they toned it down some, but I'm glad to see a brewery go crazy with extra flavors sometimes. The mouth is quite smooth, with hardly any noticeable carbonation. This might be too sweet for more than one, but I like it. It could probably make a really killer vanilla beer float.
